Heat wave across northern India! Delhi records hottest May day since 2002
The ongoing heatwave over several parts of north and central India is likely to continue during the next 24 hours, the India Meteorological Department said on Wednesday, even as the southwest monsoon made further advancement in parts of Bay of Bengal.
North and central India have been reeling under a severe heatwave and temperatures have soared over 47 degrees Celsius at a few places. A western disturbance is likely to give some relief on May 29 and 30. During this period, parts of north India are likely to witness dust storms and thunderstorms.
